Very neat smaller stemless suckering aloe from Namibia. Looks similar to the 'regular' Partridge Breast aloe in that it has smooth, stiff nearly toothless leaves with spots, but this one has linear spots that almost form stripes, leaves are recurved, stiff and very deeply 'V'd. I have several and have found them easy, though sometimes prone to rot, especially if overwatered in summer, outdoors in southern California, in the ground or in pots. Potted plants tend to be smaller and sucker more quickly than plants left in the ground. Eventually plants sucker, with suckers very close to mother plant. Flowers are very tall, branched and pale pink. Plants will often bloom repeatedly during the flowering season.

Very similar to, and probably closely related to, Aloe sladenia... read more
